"We are acutely aware of the enormity of the task ahead and the need to work collaboratively with WHO, its regional offices, Member States and the wider public health community to deliver a positive outcome. We will commit our time, expertise and resources to support public-private partnerships to accomplish the objectives of the WHO in this area."

— IFBA letter to WHO Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan 13 May, 2008

 

United Nations and World Health Organization strategies on global public health recognize that efforts to help people improve their diets and health require a whole-of-society effort and actions by all stakeholders – including the private sector.  We take this responsibility seriously and have committed to do our part and to work in collaboration with all stakeholders in the execution of our commitments and the realization of the global public health strategies of the UN and WHO.
